The Beauteous Apsara, Muse Of The Gandharvas

The Beauteous Apsara, Muse Of The Gandharvas

The Beauteous Apsara, Muse Of The Gandharvas

An otherworldly creature dances in lush wilderness. She is possessed of youth and vigour and beauty, infused with a stance as wild as the verdure that surrounds her. The nrtya apsara that you see on this page is a muse of the gandharvas of Indraloka. The ample curves of her body are carved from wood and infused with a stance so lifelike, one can almost witness the motion of her dance.

Indeed she is the very image of beauty and art in motion. One arm she raises above her head, adjusting the jaunty bun on her head; with the other she holds a stylish handheld mirror up to her face in order to see the effect. One of her gorgeous legs is bent at the knee and raised mid-air, with her hips jutting deliciously out in the opposite direction. Blue floral shells conceal the curves on her torso and a skirt of layered silk her hips, as a sea of sashes and vines float about her.

The style of composition is in keeping with ancient South Indian temple architecture. Her toes graze a lotus pedestal, from either side of which emerges an aureole of wild overgrowth. Thick snake-like vines interspersed with bits of juicy fruit, on which birds of luxuriant plumage are feeding. The intricate latticework is an example of superfine craftsmanship. Like a ripe fruit caught in the flora, the beauteous apsara continues her dance, much to the pleasure of the inhabitants of Indraloka whose fortune it is to witness her.

Over the years, I have purchased several statues, wooden, bronze and brass, from Exotic India. The artists have shown exquisite attention to details. These deities are truly awe-inspiring. I have been very pleased with the purchases.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
